Between October 2nd and December 11th, the old convention center parking lot (now dubbed “Center City Parking Lot” at 9th and H St NW) will become the site of the Cirque du Soleil! Only 200 parking spaces will remain at the site, so we wouldn’t be surprised if area garages become loaded more than usual.
Here is the Performance Area Construction Schedule:
- October 2 to 5 – Site Marking: Marking of tent locations, installation of tent poles and fencing around the site.
October 6 to 12 – Site Construction: Installation of asphalt ramps and curbs; removal of lamp poles, shrubs, etc.
October 18 to 25 – Logistical and Technical: Set-up of infrastructure, “Big Top” tent and equipment.
October 26 – Corteo, which means “cortege” in Italian, opens.
November 26 to December 4 – Tear Down of the Show
December 4 to 11 – Restoration of Center City Parking Lot
